yes ill will be using factory 16" barrel. if worst came to worst i guess i could have ED add some length to it with a flash hider or fake supressor?I don't think any block will put it at 30" unless you are using the stock 16" USC barrel. You could always have the stock USC barrel cut down and threaded to a length that will put the gun at 30" overall....probably around 11" or so.
michigan? nope worse i live in the peoples republic of kalifornia.With Ed's conversion block you will need about a 3 1/2 inch flash hider pinned/welded on to make the 30 inches folded.
I take it you must be from Michigan, where they have those strange length rules.
i havnt did the conversion yet, im waiting on HDPS new block and folder that will help my USA parts count.Rocket,
What did you end up doing for the length in cali? I am looking at doing a similar thing so would love some help. Any pictures? did you use rand's system for securing the mag?
